  •         The boot from SAN Cisco UCS blade server running Windows server 2016 and using Cisco VIC 1340 HBA's was booting ok from SAN array VMAX 850AF.

    (Optional) If desired, check the Enforce vNIC/vHBA/iSCSI Name check box.   

         
  •         If checked, Cisco UCS Manager displays a configuration error and reports whether one or more of the vNICs, vHBAs, or iSCSI vNICs listed in the Boot Order table match the server configuration in the service profile.

  •         If not checked, Cisco UCS Manager uses the vNICs, vHBAs, or iSCSI vNICs (as appropriate for the boot option) from the server configuration in the service profile. It does not report whether the vNICs, vHBAs, or iSCSI vNICsspecified in the boot policy match the server configuration in the service profile.
